Hi!

I saw this great Crystal Palace pattern online: http://www.straw.com/cpy/patterns/mikado-gloves.html.

I want to do a pair of mittens like that. Does anyone know of a pattern somewhere? I don't really care about the cable pattern, I just like the look of the one cable throughout.

I would try to freeform it or do it on my loom, but I'm itching to try and learn cabling on the needles and want something simple to do.

Thanks!

Concetta

Couldn't you just use that pattern, and then use the decreases from any other mitten pattern?

Make the Mikados as written, but when you get to the ribbing section, don't work ribbing.  Just continue in pattern until they are long enough to reach the end of your pinky.  Then divide the stitches on to 3-4 needles (or 2 circulars) so that the top and bottom of the mitten are separate.  Working in the round, decrease 1st at the beginning and end of the top and then the bottom every other row until it's long enough to clear your longest finger by a row or two.  Then turn inside out and 3needle bind off (it might take a bit of fudging if the top and bottom have a different number of stitches, I haven't looked at the pattern carefully).  Or you can graft them together.

with the thumb, don't work the ribbing.  Work it until it's long enough, then k2tog all the way around, knit 1 row, and then pull the yarn through the loops and pull to close.  If it seems a little too abrupt, k2tog all the way around again first and then pull the end through.

Thanks! That's what I needed to know. I'm still to new at knitting to tell if altering a pattern like that is possible.

I'm so psyched! I'm going to start them Wednesday and we'll see how it goes!
